Name: Paul Williams
What is your current project?
Currently I am playing Man in Marry Me A Little and Charlie Brown in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.
Where are you performing it and why is it the right fit for your piece?
Both of these musicals are being performed in repertory at The Gallery Players in Brooklyn. This theatre is absolutely perfect for both shows, but especially for Marry Me A Little. This space provides the actors an opportunity to be intimate with the audience and it feels great to have them right there with us while we are telling this story.
What’s next for you?
I hope more opportunities, like this one, come along where I get to perform with a great cast and work with an amazing creative team!
Who is your biggest inspiration right at this moment and why?
I’m inspired by people who are passionate about what they do and who pour their hearts and souls into their work. The Marry Me A Little cast and creative team are prime examples of this. We have taken a show and applied a completely new concept that is going to affect so many people in such a positive way. I’ve learned something from every single actor I share this show with and I do not know what I would do without them. Each day I walk into the theatre I am inspired to be better and for that I thank them!
